Always remember to gas up!! South Africa.

Jnr: "Dad, you think we are going to make it back home OK??"

DadaMan: "Uhmm, yea sure, there's still a lot of K's left in this tank..."

The golden rule is to make sure you are gassed up before setting out. Before moving out I looked down the filler and decided it was OK "enough"....I am sure we will get to a pump before it gets critical......

I've had a full day dirt only adventure for Me & Jnr planned for a while, to get him ready for longer trips, but for the last month and a bit, were unable to hook up a day where the weather, time, and the to-do list allowed us to just take off. Today I woke up feeling all grumpy and irritated with the world....what a good time to force everything into lining up

As we set out he was all excited, no idea about sore bums , backs and crampy legs....only an adventure laying ahead...

"Come on dad, let's roll!!!"



The idea for today was to find old dirt roads in the Eastern FreeState (where we live), the rougher and less used, the better. I fed the GPS this info, trying to hook together as many far off dirt roads as I could taking us in a circle back home without doing the same road twice.

Good to go....let's go kick up some dust...


The Easter FreeState: flat/rolling countryside.



Nice wide gravel roads where you can keep the speed up..













Old school building, deserted a long time ago...
